Football: Hiddink happy to give thumbs up to England job.

GUUS HIDDINK'S agent admits the Dutchman would "definitely be interested in hearing from the Football Association" if they approached him to I take over from

Sven-Goran Eriksson.

Hiddink's agent Cees van Nieuwenhuizen admits the PSV Eindhoven and Australia coach would be open to offers.

"There's been no contact but he would definitely be interested in hearing from the FA," said Van Nieuwenhuizen.

"It really doesn't make sense to speculate on what might happen if the FA did contact Guus and that has not been the case so far.

"I know Guus well enough and for him the challenge will be in football and not the side-effects of the media.

"We follow the media in England and we know what's going on but that would definitely not be a reason for him to say no."

Van Nieuwenhuizen insisted Hiddink is a man in demand.

"Guus is receiving offers every now and then and for him, money is definitely not the first reason to go into a job, if he were approached at all," he said.
